With dc1 I wasn't sure but thought it might be a girl and was right, dc2 I was quite sure would be a boy and was right. Dc3 I was so convinced was a girl I took pink clothes to the hospital and I was right. Dc4 I was sure was a girl and was right. Dc5 however I thought might be a boy and was wrong. Dc6 I was convinced would be a girl and was a boy so it probably is coincidence, that or instinct only works the first few times
With DS I didn't have a strong feeling either way but this time around I was convinced it is a girl from early on. Had a gender scan the other week which confirmed this, so pretty pleased my intuition has been proven correct as I was doubting myself wondering if I was thinking girl because I already have a boy iyswim
With my DS4 I was told by 2 Consultant Obstetricians that he was a girl. After Amnio I was told he was actually a boy. In the 2 weeks that I was waiting for the Amnio results I had nightly dreams that I had a girl that changed into a boy. Stopped when I got the results!!
I "knew" ds1 was a boy and would be early. No reason to think it, it was a perfectly normal pregnancy, I was healthy,.not particularly stressed or anything, but kept thinking and saying how it was good there is a neonatal unit at the hospital he was 2 months early, born spontaneously after 2 hour labour. But then I was convinced ds2 was a girl. I don't know whether I had any premonition on when I would go into labour, because my thoughts were warped by previous experience. I was convinced I wouldn't go to term, and he turned up at 37 weeks,.so I was sort of right. By ds3, I assumed he would be a boy and that I wouldn't go to full term, but not in a spooky way, just knew my pattern by then . But I still think my being convinced ds1 would be early was strange.
I also knew DS1 was a boy from the first moment I knew I was pregnant. I suppose doubters would say that I had a 50/50 chance of being right - which is a valid point of course - but I was so convinced that I painted the spare room blue & filled the wardrobe with boys clothing without even asking the gender at my scans!
It sounds really stupid looking back TBH . With DS2 & DD I had no clue and found out the gender of both at my 20 week scans.
